We are all beginning to re-emerge into the world. Everything has changed and we are very different. Transitions back will be slow. Remember what has been lost and what has been gained. Please accept my deepest condolences to those who have lost family and friends in the past year. May you allow yourself time to grieve and be with your loss.
Every week I receive a newsletter from Maria Shiver that sometimes sparks inspiration. Her seed thought, “what makes you feel alive?” I am sharing this idea with you hoping it can help guide you as you step back into your life. So many beautiful ways to appreciate what is here right now, just as it is. Life is precious and we are stepping into a wounded world. How will you walk on the path? Can you bring to mind the things that make you feel alive?
Waking up to this day makes my heart sing. To be clear and calm in my mind is a gift I treasure. Today my body feels strong and healthy, I do not take this for granted. I empathize with those who are sick and struggling to feel good. May you find your way of feeling better by visualizing a time in your life when you felt alive and well. Pray for healing and know we are praying every day for your full recovery.
Riding my bicycle around town gives me such joy and happiness. I know how fortunate I am to have this lifestyle of freedom. So thankful for my family who supports me in living a life where I feel so alive. My greatest achievement in life is my family. Everything I do is because I have so much love in my life. May you find what makes you feel alive and then spread your wings to fly high. Be gracious, be happy, be you.
To be more alive, I am choosing to be less afraid. I am going to do my best to live a life worth living. So far, I have been successful in living well but there is always room for improvement. To be in service is the highest calling. When you give fully of yourself, you will receive contentment and gratitude for what is here right now in your life. Be a helper. Spread kindness and understanding in our world. So much to be grateful for as we move forward with good intentions.
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
